Find the best in local business at TrueLocal.com.au Double serving of high, sweet notes Gabriella and Angelina Whitten-Hannah will perform with the Brisbane Philharmonic in the Cathedral classics series. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP177555 LAUREN MURADA THESE identical twins have many confused. Singers singers Gabriella and Angelina Witten-Hannah look alike and when they are per- forming, even their classically- trained voices are almost ident- ical. With Angelina as soprano, and Gabriella as mezzo soprano, the sisters will travel to Brisbane to sing in Cathedral Classics on August 24, with the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra. The 20-year-olds have one week of rehearsals before the big night at the historic St John Cathedral. ''It'll be our first experience playing all together,'' Angelina said. ''It'll be interesting to see how we work together.'' They started singing lessons when they were 12 years old and never stopped, performing in choirs, orchestras and duets. ''When you sing it's the most amazing experience because you get to share your emotions with the audience,'' Angelina said. They've performed in Canada and their native country New Zealand, before a crowd of more than 200,000 people. Both girls are studying a double degree in music and edu- cation at the University of NSW, and with their career in mind they're finding it difficult to fit everything in. ''Because we've been at uni it's hard,'' Gabriella said. ''We're actually considering leaving so we have the time to take up opportunities and get out there.'' Illegal brothel fined $90,000 THE owners of an illegal brothel in Burwood have been fined $90,000 for using the premises without development consent. Following the Land and Environment Court's rejection of an application for a therapeutic massage centre and brothel at 1a-3 Belmore St on July 24, and the issue of the fine, Burwood Council became aware the buildings con- tinued to be used for an inappro- priate purpose. The council has instructed its lawyers to prosecute the operators for breaching a brothel closure order. ''I am determined to see this finalised and will ensure that council pursues every avenue in order to bring this matter to an end,'' Mayor John Faker said. Neighbours have long com- plained of antisocial behavior. ''If the operators fail to cease their illegal activities it will result in proceedings at the Land and En- vironment Court,'' a council spokesman said.
